Birth injuries remain a serious problem today

Bringing a new infant into the world is a beautiful event, and the parents are often filled with both anxiety and excitement on the day labor ensues. However, in spite of new technologies, giving birth continues to be a naturally challenging act and there remain risks involved.

Parents still need to rely on medical staff for the delivery process if they want to have the baby at the hospital. Many people feel that this is the safest method because a medical team, machines, and medications are readily available should something go wrong.

Unfortunately, a negligent doctor or nurse could change this way of thinking altogether and may be potentially responsible for a serious injury. Birth injuries, whether the fault of hospital staff or an arguably natural occurrence, can take the form of placental abruptions or a uterine rupture, or Erb's palsy or cerebral palsy, that results in necessary long-term care for the child and significant medical expenses.

In the event that you have experienced a traumatic childbirth in the state of South Carolina, if the newborn suffered injury or there were injuries to the mother then you may be entitled to compensation for injuries.

Victims need not suffer alone – especially if the hospital or medical staff was responsible for the tragic outcome. You may have a solid birth injury case.

The experienced legal team at Furr & Henshaw can help you argue your case and go against the party that you believe to be legally at fault for the injuries sustained.

We provide guidance and advice, and represent clients, just like you, as needed in proceedings and if there is a trial. Our lawyers strive to ensure you receive an appropriate amount of money that you deserve for pain and suffering, as well as medical expenses.
